Byblos – one of the oldest cities of the world

Yesterday we had a full day in Byblos which is today named Jbeil. A very impressive ancient place with a documented history back to 6.000 BC.

Byblos is considered as one of the oldest cities in the world manly due to the superposition of archeological levels on one spot spending 8000 years of history. For some time we could walk through the archeological side.

The only building which remains is the „Citadel“ built by the crusaders – a sign reminding us on the violence of our own Christian history.
